Cuisinart DCC-1150 Coffee Maker, 10-Cup Thermal Programmable
One of the best coffee makers I have owned. This is a very easy to use coffee maker, and it is durable.
It also keeps my coffee very hot for hours without even changing the quality of the coffee. Coffee tastes fresh all day long and even the next day!
Before purchasing this, I read about some drawbacks, but they really aren't a bother to me at all.
The water level gauge is on the right side, and I can see it without wearing my glasses. The beep sound is kind of cute.
Taking the lid off to pour the last cup takes an extra second or two, but it's like most any carafe.
Overall, I would recommend this cuisinart thermal coffee maker.
